daughter is co-director, tells the story of five black and latino teenagers. they were convicted of raping and brutally beating a white female jogger in new york's central park in 1989. >> it was this huge media story. there was a lot of coverage, but everyone got it wrong at that time. >> she was hollering, help, help. >> reporter: the five teenagers confessed to the crime after what they said was an unfair interrogation. they were charged even though none was a match for a dna sample found at the scene. turns out it belonged to this man. >> he commits at least five more rapes that we know of after the central park jogger. >> reporter: but the serial rainest did not confess until after the five teens already had served sentences ranging from seven to 11 years. a judge threw out the convictions. >> the verdicts have been set aside in their entirety. >> yeah! >> reporter: a victory for the five men. yousef salam, now 38, was one of them. >> after being exonerated, it's almost like somebody running free through the grass and just throwing their hands up yelling a-ha. >> reporter: harder to o
that came out, cnn-orc poll. latino voters choice for the president. whopping 70% chose president obama compared with 26 terz for mitt romney. romney here is doing worse than john mccain did back in 2008 who got 31%. the latino vote. also worse than george w. bush in 2004 who got 44% of the latino. anna, to you. is there anything at this point that romney can do to get the latino support up? >> well, suzanne, i think praying on novina might help. look, he -- we had a tough primary on the republican side. i think mitt romney has been an unknown commodity to his hispani hispanics. he doesn't come from a border state like john mccain or george w. bush did. he has not done a great intense voter outreach with the latinos because he ran out of money after the primary. he -- let me just be absolutely truthful and give smu straight talk as john mccain would say. mitt romney dug himself into a hole with latinos during the primary. he said some things that are coming back to haunt him. he now needs to find a way to dig himself out of that hole. i think the only way he will do it is if he really c
, the president will go west. the latino vote is critical to nevada. when you got a dead heat race that either candidate could win, you're going to spend a lot of time and a lot of hours on the road and because you have to go from nevada to new hampshire to florida, got a lot of ground to cover. >> the president acknowledging how important the latino vote is. this is something the president told the des moines register, apparently kind of off the record, the quote now coming from an interview, a transcript of which the white house released just this morning, saying this is off the record, i will just be very blunt, should i win a second term, a big reason i will win a second term is because the republican nominee and the republican party have so alienated the fastest growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. so that acknowledgement there. he says it is off the record, it was his intent, it seems as though to be on the record as making it very notable that the latino vote is pivotal. >> this was an odd one, fred. the president called the editor and the top officials of des
the middle of the road or the latino voters? >> geraldo, i think it will be important for him to talk about immigration reform and have a balanced approach of cutting down the time that we have for applications and people coming to the united states legally. i think he has to make sure he is enforcing the laws and as you know the big issue for virginians are going to be the defense cuts and i think that is what governor romney is going to sell and i think that is ultimately what is going to help him win the commonwealth of virginia. >> geraldo: what about the latino vote, though, congressman? i underand it that defense is a huge, huge issue in the commonwealth where there is so many defense facilities. but there are substantial number of latinos there, particularly around the disdistrict of columbia. if he talks tough, first of alllet me ask you this. i withdraw that statement. the governor said he will not repeal president obama's temporary dream act measure where he gave a pass, a two year visa to those students you know story who were brought here as children. do you regret that governor
and the president on the issue of immigration reform. listen, make no mistake, there is a rapidly increasing latino vote on the line for both of these men and that was not lost on mr. tom foreman, my colleague here at cnn, who has some of the best bells and whistles to cut through all the garbage and get through all the rhetoric and get right to the facts. so have a look and have a listen. >> republicans have been going after president obama for months saying he has not engaged the issue of illegal immigration. listen to how mitt romney attacked him and how the president responded. >> why did he fail to even promote legislation that would have provided an answer for those that want to come here legally and for those that are here illegally today? >> we put more border patrol on than any time in history and the flow of undocumented workers across the border is actually lower than it's been in 40 years. >> this basic claim that president obama produced no immigration reform goes hand in glove with a bigger republican narrative which is that the president has been so concerned about getting latino vot

is a felony popped up in predominantly african-american and latino neighborhoods. prison sentence for voter fraud. likely targeting former felons that have a right to vote. clear channel, we are sitting in a clear channel studio. they announced that they would take down the billboards after the sponsor refuse today come forward. the company is donating 10 billboards declare voting is a right, not a crime. >> that's good. nice. >> stephanie: the judge ruled, pennsylvania we had a call yesterday, chris the judge ruled pennsylvania voters without photo i.d. could still cast a regular ballot. state sponsored ads have continued to tell residents they must show i.d. they are ads are on radio and it. v. and mailed to seniors via a precipitation trouble program. billboard targeting spanish speakers continues to misleadingly promote the i.d. requirement. and we have talked about this a lot. several -- excuse me, present ceos are pressuring their employees to vote for romney saying they may lose their job in obama is ele
in milwaukee and in ohio and some latino communities. we know that these billboards are put up to intimidate people, scare them off from voting, because there's a lot of mythology around what happens if, for example, you vote and you didn't pay your parking tipgts or you vote and you didn't pay child support or you voted and you didn't show up for jury duty. those kinds of things make people think, oh, no, i need to stay away, and so what we had to do is we have to educate voters. we have to do a countervailing balance because we know that there are people who don't want african-americans and latinos to vote. >> let me ask you about this countervailing because it seems to me that part of what happens is if you take what folks are meant to be doing, what their actually jobs are, and you say, okay, instead of doing that or you have to do that but you also now have to educate voters, have you to put up new billboards, then you actually add this kind of additional burden, this additional cost to folks for just attempting to vote. is that what this is? it's sort of in the end that no whaert what

and ohio in black and latino neighborhoods. we're mobilizing hundreds of thousands 6 folks to call on clear channel and push them to remove these billboards. >> what they're saying is that people have these associations. people who may have been involved with the police think they can't vote when they see these scare tactics. what is the impact of an ad like this tricia, and why is it so outrageous? >> well, this is unbelievably outrawoutrageous. it looks very neutral but by targeting minority communities who have already been discriminated through a widely researched and proven practices where young black men in particular are arrested, harassed and jailed for things that other people are not even seen for and sentenced with long sentences threatened with a felony builds on already existing discriminatory process. it's incredibly hostile and again it's part of hundreds of years. it's not just the koch brothers. it's not just the recent campaign. african-american voters have been unwelcome at the polls for centuries. i think thank goodness for rashad's campaign. we really all americans need
-american vote for barack obama, 0% for romney. but the latino vote is crucial on the strategy you mentioned of nevada. look how many times the president's gone to nevada. he even prepped for the denver debate in nevada. little picked up on the press, but he went to cesar chavez's burial site up in the mountains of california. and with ken salazar, a great latino representative of colorado, his interior secretary, they saved all of la paz, cesar chavez, the great labor organizer's home in person tuity by the federal government, now a federal government. that played well in hispanic newspapers around the country because chavez is the martin luther king in many ways for latinos. so you see the president's 70% or more with latinos, and it could make a difference just in nevada alone being able to pick that up. >> you spent time with our president. and obviously, it's a great piece. what did you see in his eyes? what are we not feeling? did you see a guy empowered? nervous? just as guy to guy, you sitting there, walk away. >> he's unflappable. and he's ready to roll. i asked him about denver, wh
latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, reverend. >> david, what do these latest tapes tell you about governor romney? >> i'm glad you played that second tape. if you listen to it carefully and think about it for a moment, it says that mitt romney wants america to compete with china for having an environment more hospitable for business, but why do businesses go to china? they go because there are low wages and weak labor protections and nonexistent environmental standards. so, is he suggesting that's what he wants for american workers and american consumers? i mean, it's not a well thought out idea. certainly nothing he will talk about in the campaign. and since we're in the closing days, probably nothing he'll be pressed on. but he's saying, hey, guys, we have to be as bad as china in order to get businesses to come here rather than go there. >> and it's also a mischaracterization of his position and the president's. another thing that struck me is when i heard mrs. romney at the fund-raiser say the president isn't adult enough to lead the country.
latinos in particular, those two parts of his base. african-american enthusiasm subpoeis up and fine and there. latinos and young voters, this is sort of the president's challenge. it's not about swing voters for him i would argue. at this point it's about trying to fire up two voting groups more than anything else, because they doubled it. he's winning latinos by a bigger margin, but because they're not as enthusiastic if they don't look like likely voters, he might not net any new votes in some places. if seniors are ticking up in enthusiasm, which is what we show, that's the difference in nevada, right? that's how a nevada goes 51-49 obama to 51-49 romney. >> mika. >> we saw also in the polls the enthusiasm gap, which i think is really troubling for the president but also tightening with women. what do you think is going on there? >> what i find very interesting is how one of the problems obama now has is his own side is so hysterical. it's like the republicans are very good at staying on message when they have a bad hole to get into it. if something goes wrong for them, the whole
honeymooners? >> gretchen: what? >> you know what? i deplore in bough the debates not one mention of any latino issues. how is that? >> brian: that is unbelievable. that would -- >> or any urban issues. >> gretchen: interesting transition. but here we go. we should know today whether or not a body found in colorado is that of ten-year-old jessica ridgeway. police are having trouble identifying the body and here is the horrible part, because it is apparently not intact. jessica, that is, disappeared a week ago while walking to school on wednesday, a body was found in a park seven miles from where she was last seen. authorities will hold a news conference this afternoon. they plan to release more information then. >>> one month after ambassador chris stevens was murdered, the obama administration has named a new american envoy to libya. lawrence pope is the new man in charge. he will represent our country -- >> brian: you're getting better and better. >> gretchen: my french is coming back from high school. >> brian: i took german. >> gretchen: until the white house nominates a new one. he was an
think whoever is elected has no choice but to get this done. >> how about the latino vote? where does that stand now? and how is it that it feels like republicans have lost that vote when george w. bush owned it? >> he really did. i mean, by republican standards george w. bush did really well with the latino vote. jeb bush in my home state of florida when he ran for governor, he owned the latino vote. right now it's looking really bad for republicans. but again, that's part of the process of the primary where each republican tried to go further and further right on immigration and it was seen -- they were seen as being people who were bashing immigrants. even if they were trying to take a strong stand on illegal immigration. >> republicans have been accused of being obstructionist to this president's attempts at policy making. >> right. >> what's your thought on that? >> if only they could be as kind-hearted and giving and loving as democrats were to george w. bush. it makes me sad sometimes to think of how sweet nancy pelosi and harry reid were -- oh, wait a second. now they tried to
and ceo of vote latino and msnbc contributor. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thank you. >> joe, get these right wingers a handkerchief, please. >> it was four, five, six years ago wining was the thing they said we did. i used to have these debates and they would say, oh, you're wining, you're wining. and now they are here once again. but they do this. they always accuse the other side of doing something that they are actually doing. look, you know, counting three minutes more, well, somebody said that mitt romney used more words than barack obama did. it's absolutely absurd and whenever you -- you know when you've lost the debate is when you start looking at the style. i'm surprised they didn't criticize the tie he was wearing but they knew they lost. so this is how they deal with it. >> that may be neck. maria, have you ever seen anything like this before? >> no. and i think exactly what we're saying is it was all smoke and mirrors. canned dee candy crowley fact checked them. they know how high the stakes are. look, romney actually had less talking time than the last d
voters. so it is sort of counterintuitive. ohio has one sixth percentage of latinos or hispanic voters than the country does at large. i mean it doesn't have the minorities that you associate with sort of democratic growth or democratic coalition. and i really do think david's right, steve ratner did a great job but it was barack obama. and mitt romney was wrong. and this, they're still on the defensive about this, at recently as thursday night in defines, ohio, rob portman, senator from ohio and the surrogate debate substitute for president obama introduced mitt romney saying let's get this straight. mitt romney was the first guy-- barack obama took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. mitt romney was for guaranteeing loans, and they're still trying to explain it. and he's very much on the defensive. so obama is running better with whites and white males in ohio than he is elsewhere, in large part because of the auto bailout and they've got a great ground game in ohio too. >> we should emphasize it's not a slam-dunk for obama. if you look at the polls it's been ve steady t point advant

not to be believed it's so big. this was a group that everyone had written up. latinos and women, mitt romney, mitt romney has no chance to get those. he closed 18 points in one debate. i'd be surprised. that's a huge leap. >> i never thought it was like 10 or 11 points, i don't think it's tied now either. i think it's maybe four or five. again, looking at all the polls. i think this may be an outlier on the women. i think you're right. >> there were a couple of other quick things in that poll. first of all, on the michigan, that's remarkable because a month ago, mitt romney, crossroads, everybody else pulled out of michigan. there were no ads running there. if he closed the gap like that, he did it on his own. also 78% of independents in that pew survey thought mitt romney won the debate. and then the enthusiasm for mitt romney, a campaign that a lot of people said, joe you know, and inside republican circles, this is a loser, we're moving on to 2016. now 67% of republicans say they're enthusiastic about their candidate, that's up 15 points from the last survey. >> mika, you brought this up this w

areas predominantly african-american or latino. >> reporter: the billboards have been popping up in cities in ohio and wisconsin. 85 in milwaukee, 30 in columbus, another 30 in cleveland and 31 in cincinnati. protests started almost as soon as they went up demanding the signs come down. >> this billboard is nothing but a symbol of pure unadulterated suppression to target an african-american community. >> reporter: the two advertising companies that sold the space, clear channel and norton outdoor, say the buyer was not out to target minorities. >> there was no request for any specific demographic target at all. they wanted the best locations they could get for those four weeks leading up to the election. >> reporter: the bigamist ri is who's behind them? the billboard itself does not tell. it reads paid for by a private family foundation. and neither company will say who that is. after declining an on camera interview, here's what clear channel wrote to cnn.
